CSA Week #3

This week's CSA was loaded with a bunch of goodies - the box was practically overflowing!  Let's see what we got...
  • Pac Choi
  • Strawberries
  • Head Lettuce
  • Mesclun Mix
  • Radishes
  • Green Onions
  • Arugula
  • Bibb Lettuce
  • Kale
  • Microgreens
See what I'm talking about?  TONS of stuff!

And look at these microgreens!  I let out a squeal of joy when I say these.  They're so cute and I can't wait to use them!

We even have another blogger's CSA to include this week too...

Mindy over at The World In My Kitchen (also a Kentucky blogger, woot woot!) received this bounty of goodies:

Spinach, Mesclun, Easter Egg Radishes, Hakauri Turnips, Parsley, Pak Choi
 Thanks Mindy for sending in your CSA pic!  And you guys be sure to check out Mindy's blog to see what she'll be doing with this batch of goodies!

I'd love to see what the rest of you are getting in your CSA's & Farmer's Markets, too! 

***If you guys received a CSA this week, what did you end up getting?  I'd love to have a weekly round-up of your CSA goodies (if you participate in one), or even if you made a weekly visit to your Farmer's market - I'd love to see the local produce everyone gets!  So feel free to e-mail a snapshot of your goods (as well as your name and blog title (and don't worry if you don't have a blog, your name will be just fine!) as well as link to your blog) at mtlabor85 (at) yahoo (dot) com and I'll post them in next Thursday's CSA post!   

And don't forget to check back tomorrow for a Derby Pie Fudge recipe!


  1. Ah, yummy! I saw a recipe for roasted strawberry jam this week that I'm dying to try. It'd be better with CSA fruit, though!

  2. It looks like our pak choi (or pac choi!) might be from the same place too? We're going to use it in a stir fry tomorrow, I think! I can't wait to see what you do with the just seems so fancy! :-)

  3. I love perusing the local farmers market and seeing what I can grab up. Produce is typically cheaper than the grocery store and tastes so much better!

  4. What great loot! My farmers market was today, and I plan on getting more veggies at the one closer to my apartment on Tuesday!

  5. What great vegetables. We have out market tomorrow so it will be interesting to see what we get different. Diane

  6. You'll have to whip up some 5-star dinner to use those micro greens! I always associate them with white tablecloths.

    Looks like you'll be having lots of salads this week(:

    I need to remember to take a picture of my bounty before I delve into it.

  7. Those greens look gorgeous. So inspiring for healthy recipes. Beautiful!
